A luau can be a blast, and, if your time allows for one, they are highly recommended. The better ones are at the higher price end, and you should book them in advance.
Experience the tastes and sights of Hawaiian culture and history with the Te Au Moana (“The Ocean Tide”) Luau at the oceanfront Marriott Resort in Wailea. You’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat feast of Hawaiian cuisine, an open bar, an Imu ceremony unearthing the pig cooking in a traditional underground oven, interactive activities such as island tattoos and hula dancing, and authentic and entertaining performances with vibrant costumes depicting the stories of Hawaii and the Polynesian people, culminating in the exciting fire-knife dance. All of this takes place with a scenic backdrop of a tropical beach and a setting sun over the Pacific Ocean.
Full current menu here. In addition, the open bar includes tropical cocktails like Hawaiian Mai Tais and a wide selection of liquors, wine, and beer.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The luau is operating. Temporary changes for everyone's safety and to comply with local regulations include: 1) reduced capacity (~50%), 2) table service instead of buffet (except walk-up bar), 3) only one seating/price tier, 4) each party at a private assigned table, 5) no interactive activities, audience participation on stage, or flower lei, and 6) minimum of 2 people per booking (sorry, no parties of 1 can book). Hand sanitizing stations, social distancing, the use of masks, and other standard safety measures are also employed. Please ensure your entire party is booked under one booking in order to sit together; parties at different tables may not mingle at the luau during COVID.
To book after June, please select Option 2 in the booking form. If the COVID restrictions are no longer active and tables no longer private, you will be in Premier Seating, which was the same price prior to COVID.
